Okay. Let’s get this out of the way first and foremost. Ryan Gosling does nothing for me. I know. I’m a freak, right? I can’t help that I find EvaMendes faaaaarrrr more attractive in that way. I just do. I hear-tell she might be a bit nutty (what actress isn’t?) and that he’s ALLEGEDLY a big fat cheater (again, what actor isn’t?). But here’s the real story:
Baby Blues, INDEED Aaron.
If I’m gonna go for a “Hey Girl…”-sensitive blondish dude, give me Aaron Paul ANYDAY over Ryan. His eyes are too close together; not his fault, I realize. Just something to make a note of for future reference. I also think it adds to Ryan’s air of smugness, which isn’t even in Aaron Paul’s emotional dictionary.
In, Drive, Nicolas Winding Refn turned Ryan Gosling into a nameless, mythic hero, willing to break laws to procure justice in the outskirts of Los Angeles. Their second film together, it seems, sends that roaming vigilante to the dirty underground of Bangkok.
The first preview of Only God Forgives has been released (or, leaked) online, and though it’s just a brief 20 seconds, the footage displays the same sort of gritty, shadow-cloaked drama that made the actor and director’s first collaboration such a critical hit. Set in the underground kickboxing world of Thailand, Gosling plays a gym owner who has to take out his brother’s murderer — or perish himself. The film co-stars Kristin Scott Thomas, as Gosling’s mother.
I was just wondering whatever happened to Kristin Scott Thomas. Oh, and don’t forget (like you would?) that RyRy‘s film, Gangster Squad which opens this Friday, January 11.
Ryan Gosling is known for being a good actor with an amazing body, musician with his band Dead Man’s Bones (check them out!) and a lover of dogs, but he might also have another career in fighting crime. The folks over at The New York Observer picked up on some tweets by British writer Laura Penny who detailed how star saved her from being hit by a cab in NYC.
Because there were some people that didn’t believe that Gosling went out of his way to help this woman, she pointed out that a woman who witnessed this go down confirmed that that she had indeed been saved by TheGodling. I think that’s what should all call him from now on. Ryan seems like a genuinely good guy–he actually stopped a fight between two guys arguing over a painting. Who else does that?!
If the Avengers movie gets a sequel, and it very well might, they should add him as another member. He doesn’t have to play a character, he could just play himself. He already has the mind and body of a superhero.
